This is the store I have wanted to open for a long time now. Not the easiest parking lot to get into when it is dark, raining and you dont know the area, but once I was parked and in the store it was awesome. You walk into the wine section through the front door and farther into the back is all the beer. My main goal for the stop was to pick up a few bottles of Saison-Brett. Mission accomplished. They had a big Boulevard Smokestack limited series display right upon walking into the beer area. As I began to peruse I found a ton of Midwestern stuff including Bells, Founders, Goose Island (Sofie), Boulevard and many more. The import selection was equally impressive with a wide array of Cantillon, de Proef, de Struise, trappists, Dupont and many more. My main complaint was that the beer area was not quit big enough for the amount they offered. I will take that problem any day. Prices seemed just a touch on the high side but I have no problem with that when the selection is that large. A quick trip through the remainder of the store was euqally impressive. Great wine selection, big open cooler of cheese, gourment snacks, chocolate and coffee. Certainly a great store and a must stop if I ever find myself back in St Louis.

I love this place! I visit this store at least once a week. They have everything you could possibly ever want in beer, wine, and liquor along with all the gourmet foods they stock. If there is an off chance they don't have what you're looking for they will go out of there way to find it for you. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and will help in any way they can. If you're in St. Louis and looking for a favorite beer, wine, bourbon, scotch or you would just like a nice brie and some prosciutto stop by TWCP.

Thorough selection of beer (and wine, bourbon and cheese) - lots of local craft beer available. They also have a great selection of imported beers if you're looking for that. Staff isn't the most helpful - unless you're one of the regulars they know. Still, a great place to go for good craft beer

This is easily the best beer, wine, whiskey, and gourmet food store in St. Louis. If you are looking for a well curated selection of beer, wine, scotch, bourbon, spirits, candy, cheese, dips, or other gourmet snacks and small foods, this is your destination. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable as well.

Specifically talking about beer, they have a tremendous selection of local craft, national craft, international, and macro brands. Basically, if the distro is available, they have it. They also have a rewards club, the BRC, which is free to join and how they allocate limited products.

Overall, this is pretty much the only beer and liquor store you need to know in St. Louis. Sure, other stores have quality and selection as well, but this store has something for everyone in the most literal sense possible.

The selection and the people make this the greatest bottle shop I know. Paul, who runs the shop, cares deeply about beer and his customers. He does his best to create fair systems to distribute allocated beers, and his barrel-aging partnership with our excellent local breweries is a genius innovation that has turned out some fantastic beers. Plus, the shelf selection alone should please anyone. And they host Friday afternoon tastings to boot! The only thing I'd realistically hope to see them add would be some music (why not?)--and ideally some kind of bottle share series in their nice tasting room. Really a great shop!
